locally sourced x crafted with love


Coffee Company + Local Table

Blue Hippo Coffee Company spreads love and coffee to Verona. We provide high quality fair trade coffee, alongside a menu created from fresh, healthy, seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. Southern and French flavors meet up in our artisanal biscuits, tartines and sandwiches, fresh baked doughnuts are made to view! Quiches and buttermilk biscuits, pimento cheese and prosciutto. Its all good. Serious coffee, good eats.


P.S....Funny story...about a year and a half ago, my really good friend Julie, who is a graphic design professor at UGA (she's awesome, by the way), gave her students an assignment to come up with branding for a new coffee shop called Blue Hippo Coffee Co. They did, and they did a great job!...and then posted their portfolios all over the internet, making it seem like Blue Hippo is a chain. I PROMISE you, it is not a chain, We started as an idea, then a bicycle cart, and now a shop. By the way, all of those super talented, enthusiastic students have since kindly agreed to remove my name from their online portfolios, and also my SEO skills are improving, so hopefully people will stop asking me about the Blue Hippos in Portland.
